The "Real Space - Cyberspace" Paradigm
In a chain of "real - perceived - imagined space" the computer reduces to a uniform model of only real and imagined space. It cannot undertake man's function or it cannot build the perception model. However, perception assumes physiological perception, psychological estimation and understanding, and emotional ho-experience. For a person the seizing of space during perception is constructing temporary spatial images and their development. The communicative relations of the person with environment

Learning in the first professional job: the first year of full time employment after college for acc
This paper reports findings from the first phase of a four-year research project funded by the UK Economic and Social Research Council as part of its Teaching and Learning Research Programme. The major component of this project is a longitudinal study of trainee accountants, graduate trainee engineers, and newly qualified nurses in England. This critical period of introduction to professional work has not been previously studied by a longitudinal series of observations and interviews, though a n
Implications of resource management in La Parguera, Puerto Rico (The)
A recent rezoning of La Parguera, southwest Puerto Rico, as a tourist zone has resulted in an imbalance between development and appropriate resource management. Development associated with tourism is destroying the sub-tropical dry forest and adding pressure on the marine resources through increased boat traffic and marine structures. Declining water quality and benthic community health are two of the impacts seen in La Parguera associated with these land use changes. This study is three-fold. F

Developing a new endoscopy laboratory with digital tools.
Tampere School of Architecture had to leave its old down-town building and move to the TU Tampere university campus in Hervanta, 10 km away. In this process, the 20 years old endoscopic system "The Urban Simulator" was one of the victims. Old mechanical parts and especially the original home-built microcomputer system were too old to compete with modern computer-aided methods. A new endoscopical system is now under construction, using all of the 20-year experience, new technical components and c

CHEM 112-03, General Chemistry II, Spring 2008
In this course, you will study several of the fundamental principles that define chemistry by exploring the composition, structure, properties, and reactivity of matter. We will focus most of our attention on inorganic compounds, since the underlying ideas in the models of bonding and reactivity as they apply to these substances are applicable to organic compounds as well. At the completion of the class, you should have had a solid introduction to the basic models that chemists use and should be
